Back in December 2014 antirez reached out to the community, to find a new maintainer of hiredis. In a joined effort Michael, Matt and me took on the effort and just 2 weeks ago Matt released Version 0.12.1, after just two years without a proper release.
This weekend I got in contact with Pieter who handed over access to all major packages based on hiredis to me. Sunday I pushed out new versions for all of them:
- Ruby: hiredis-rb v0.6.0 (gem)
- Python: hiredis-py v0.1.6 (pypi) (this is my first ever maintained Python package, yey)
All of them include only non-breaking changed and an upgrade of the underlying hiredis code, so all additional libraries and applications depending on them should just work after an upgrade. If not, please open a ticket.
I again want to say thank you to Pieter who maintained all of these packages in the past. Also thank you to Matt and Michael, who helped push hiredis forward.
